Moon Shot for Equity
Carthage has joined the nation’s first regional consortium of colleges and universities to commit to “Moon Shot for Equity,” a new national initiative that aims to close equity gaps in higher education by 2030.
Carthage College, Milwaukee Area Technical College, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and the University of Wisconsin-Parkside announced the partnership in a joint statement in fall 2020.
The four institutions will work together and with education firm EAB to help more students of color and other historically underserved populations graduate from college.
